Todd Dore is an early adapter - very early. Rather than wait for consumer friendly all-electric cars to hit the market, he converted his 2001 Volkswagen Beetle after the engine burned out on the expressway in 2008.

“There are a couple of mechanics in the area who are familiar with converted electric vehicles,” Dore said. “But for the most part I did it myself with a fair amount of assistance from other club members.”

Dore belongs to the Fox Valley Electric Auto Association, formed in 1975 to promote electric vehicle use.
